I've often gained solace from the Psalms of David... It shows how God is a comfortor, our provider, and we must be faithful and trust in him. It makes manifest our weaknesses and frailties as finite human beings. It is illustrative that the good Lord will pick us up and sustain us when we stumble and fall. When David was victimized by slanderers and by those who sought his life like Saul, he was adamant that the Lord was his refuge and strength. He had a repentant heart and confessed his foolishness. The fights and battles in our life are inherently spiritual in nature as we're not fighting against flesh and blood but spiritual darkness.
